DIG Welcomes KPMG as a Partner
"Being part of a knowledge network like DIG is important because it gives us the opportunity to get updated knowledge about what works and does not, and to develop the right competence for the future together with all the other partners," says Rune Skjelvan from KPMG.
DIG is most happy to welcome KPMG among the centre’s partners from the business world.
Partner and Head of Advisory at KPMG, Rune Skjelvan, looks forward to the cooperation.
"We want to be a DIG partner because DIG is a pivotal arena and community for the development of new knowledge and insight on how to use new technology for innovation and sustainable growth. We have a lot to learn from this ecosystem," he says.
How does KPMG work with digital transformation and innovation?
"KPMG has built up capacity and capabilities around market-leading technology and platforms. By combining this with good regulatory insight and business understanding, we are well positioned to help our customers with innovation and digital transformation," Skjelvan explains.
"Digital transformation is not possible if you only focus on technology. Processes, management, organisation and business models are equally important elements to address. By embedding these insight and skills into our advisory services, we can provide our clients with unique interdisciplinary services combining tech, regulatory insights and strategy," he adds.
‘What aspects of digital transformation and innovation are of most interest to you?’
"Combining professional knowledge and sector insight with modern technology is of most interest for us. We like to have a 360 view."
"How do you think you can benefit as DIG partner?"
"Being part of a knowledge network like DIG is important to us because it gives us the opportunity to get updated knowledge about what works and does not. We can help clients implement good and well proven solutions and we can bring back experiences and insights we have both from Norway but also globally," says Skjelvan.
"As we all know technology in itself is only an enabler. To really scale and transform your business you need to develop and nurture a culture where continuous upskilling and learning is in the forefront of all you do. Hence, DIG for us is the place where we, together with all the other partners, can develop the right competence for the future."
"How do you believe the digital landscape will change over the next 10 years?"
"This is the one million dollar-question that would be good to answer. The digital landscape will continue to evolve at high speed and people and organisations will continue to transform as part of this. The next 1-2 years we believe IoT/5G, AI and Automation will be an important part of this landscape. The big global tech companies will still be setting the scenes for the development the next few years but if they still are allowed to dominate in the same way the next 10 years are still to be seen," Skjelvan concludes.
